More than a dozen cities and counties have directed local law enforcement to de-prioritize marijuana possession enforcement in their areas, either through voter initiatives or through action by elected officials. Some municipalities, such as Seattle and Santa Monica, are faithfully following the ordinances. Unfortunately, others seem to be ignoring the lowest priority measures. Please see the following chart for information on LLEP (lowest law enforcement priority) jurisdictions.

* In 2011, Missoula County prosecutor Fred Van Valkenburg convinced the state legislature to attempt to thwart the will of voters by passing a bill  — H.B. 391 — saying that a local initiative cannot determine local police priorities. Whether the new law applies to Missoula County’s ordinance — which is now an ordinance, not an initiative — has not been litigated. However, Van Valkenburg has said he is prosecuting marijuana possession again.
